Movie Reviews

Nostalgic , Yet Well Aged Comedy !
Armando M. Mesa | Chandler, AZ | 01/12/2003
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This 1986 comedy never misses or loses it's comical beat (not even in 2003) !It is still one of my favorite comedies from the 80's. Whenever I view this tape now in the 21st century,oh boy, does it ever bring back memories of high school and the absurdly and fashionably challenged of the 80's ! So, of course the film will look simply outdated;but, so what ?! The plot's not very deep either. Just a simple tale of two guys going to charm school for a little bit of social climbing and to see who gets the girl (away from a rich goon)...It's the entire cast of dysfunctional and socially challenged misfits taking ettiquette lessons that is simply worth watching over and over ( Marsha Wharfield from Night Court fame as the cop with an attitude/aggressive problem) !Whoopee Boys reminds me of what made Paul Rodriguez a hysterical and very talented, funny Latino comedian. His pure rawness and raunchiness keeps the viewer's attention!Another comical character of curiosity is the nerd of nerds actor Eddie Deezen who played Eddie Lipschitz as a geek who really made the the hysterics of going to charm school complete with Rodriguez' antics. What ever happened to Deezen? As for the other actors, unfortunately Denholm Elliot(Bavarian Luminati instructor) passed away a few years ago and was better known for his role as the kooky Marcus Brody in the Indiana Jones films. Michael O'Keefe would later star as Roseann Bar's brother in-law married to sister Jackie of the Roseann Show.He later married singer Bonnie Raitt in real life.Yes, the comedy is worth having this put on dvd. Shame on the studios for not doing it ! Those of us growing up as teens when this film came out will still truly appreciate it's crass humor as well as have a flood of 80's memories. Check out when the guys crash the Palm Beach party held in the honor of "Ralph","one of the greatest minds of our time" heh heh...and don't forget the guys dressed up like Miami Vice rejects for the memorial/party!...I don't know about anyone else's copy of this film on VHS, but I still get a kick out of the B- movie preview of "Girls' Night Out" with again the crazy music and clothing of the 80's !...The preview shows a young and sexy Daphne Zuniga, Virginia Madsen, and some unknown 80's girl named Cindy Gibb...Wow, truly a sign of the times..."
About time...

""SOLD!" I've been waiting for this to be released on DVD. Classisc Paul Rodriguez. Haven't seen this film since mid 1980's, but I still remember the lines. Amadeus, Amadeus, rock me Amadeus! Don't sleep on this one."

"I have had this movie on VHS for years,and I probably have watched it a million times, and still laugh myself silly. It's the zaniest, silliest, most hysterical movie I have ever seen. It is too funny for it's own good, without being absurd. I highly recommend it!!"
One of my all time favorite comedies!!!!

"I wholeheartedly agree with every other reviewer on this page. This movie is fantastic. Who do we have to beat up to to get this thing on dvd. One of the funniest movies ever...the portion of the movie spent at charm school is 20 minutes of nonstop laughter. When barney shoots the orange peel into humping's have to rewind that and watch it in slow motion about 10 times...the faces he makes will kill you! I thought I was the only one, but apparently I have found the other 28 people in the world who love this movie. Why this did not become a cult classic I'll never know."Hey spartacus, what are you in for?""
